Know More About Great Dane Puppies.

The growth of a Great Dane puppy can be easily noticed by most Great Dane owners since they have a very fast growth. It is a perfect time to cuddle and play with your Great Dane puppy especially if it has arrived around eight weeks of age. It has been known that when a Great Dane puppy reaches ten weeks old, anyone will already have a hard time carrying it, thus, while it is still young as eight weeks old, you should already spend more time cuddling with your puppy. Any Great Dane owners will definitely have a hard time during this stage of their dog’s life since this period of growth has been stressful for the life of the dog since there are lots of circumstances that could happen when the skeleton of the dog is fast reaching the adult age.

It is undeniable that the owner of the dog and also the dog itself will experience a lot of problems during the growth stage. Panosteitis is probably one of the most common problems that can be encountered during the growth of a Great Dane. When the Great Dane puppy reaches around four and nine months age, it is the time where it usually experiences panosteitis. Otherwise known as “wandering lameness”, it causes inflammation in the long bone of one of the legs and often moves from leg to leg. You will definitely feel pity if your dog will experience panesteitis since the pain that it gives ranges from mild, to unnoticeable lameness, up to an excruciatingly painful condition that will lead to the frustration of your dog and not wanting to get up anymore. You will notice limping on one leg this week, and another leg next week. However, the condition that the panosteitis gives to your Great Dane puppy won’t last forever because as soon as your puppy reaches its first year, then the condition and pain will eventually disappear. There are definitely a lot of problems that can afflict a Great Dane pup, and one of which is the Paosteitis. It is very advisable to bring your puppy to the veterinarian if ever you have a feeling that it has medical problems. Early diagnosis of these issues is of paramount importance.

Even if for a fact that the Great Dane puppy is large, there are still instances where some of them are not strong enough. You have to keep in mind that a growing Great Dane pup is not strong enough, because in fact, they are very fragile. As long as your dog still hasn’t reached its first year, do not force it to exercise. By all means, take your puppy for walks and allow off-lead play in a secure environment – just do not overdo it.
